During the 1950s in her hometown of New York, Doris Banbury (1930-2015) hung out with like-minded friends who loved to chase and photograph A-list theatre, film, television and radio celebrities including Marilyn Monroe; Elizabeth Taylor and Sammy Davis Jr. A select few of Doris’s works were purchased by San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (here is Doris’s page on SFMOMA website HERE) And a select few of Doris’s work was featured in a 2010 SFMOMA exhibit by Sandra Phillips.

Doris lovingly passed on her love of photography to her two children. Doris’s later work and her past work will be featured in a future book slash MEMOIR.
